Details

You will learn the basics of Unix Signals and Forking. We will see several code examples in Ruby to illustrate the concepts of Signals and Fork Unix system calls. These concepts have practical applications in managing web application infrastructure. For instance, Unicorn uses these concepts to bring up master process and several child processes to handle the load.
